I love this app! It’s so fun to see what fact they have each day about baby’s development. Fun and informational!
Can we just lay off the sex articles (pun intended) 4/5
I do like this app. However, there are like 2 articles a week about how pregnant woman WANT to have sex and SHOULD have sex. I'm 99% sure the web developer is a guy with a pregnant wife. A healthy sex life is important...but when I'm sitting here feeling like a whale and newsflash DO NOT want to have sex I don't want to see yet another article with a pic of a perky prego girl being all sexy with some title about how I should be doing the same. I can't be alone in this! Lay off the "have sex" posts!
Love it except doesn’t code for multiples 4/5
After I found out I was pregnant, I found that the Ovia app Was the most credible in terms of citing medical sources and had a very helpful calendar that showed you how many weeks you would be in advance. I loved the daily and weekly updates and the personalization of each sentence based on your baby’s nickname.
After I found out that my Pregnancy is actually a twin pregnancy however, I was less impressed with the app after this point as the sentence structure and subject-verb agreement doesn’t match. I contacted the helpdesk, and they confirmed that the app is not yet set up to be configured for multiples. There IS a section of the app where you can punch in if you are having more than one baby (and how many you are having), but that’s as far as it goes. When you change your baby’s nickname from “Baby S” to your babies’ nickname “The S Twins”, for example, you will still get a bad grammar notification such as “The S Twins *is* now the size of *a* raspberry.” As a grammar nut, this annoys me daily. I still choose to use the app though as I like all of its other features- newsfeed, articles, videos, appointment calendar, health reminders to take prenatal vitamins, etc.
Please Ovia, configure the app fully for multiples!
It doesn't get any better than this.
Great app!! 5/5
I love everything about the app! Works great and the food/medicine lookup is awesome.
Top notch 5/5
By Luna LaRue
This app has helped me so much. I learn new things every day and it has helped me keep my street levels down!
Unable to track multiple pregnancies 1/5
This app is great for all the features and functions for ONE pregnancy. You are not able to track multiple pregnancies. The only solution is to print the data you’ve entered by logging into the website, and then resetting your profile.
I mean honestly, how hard could it be to support multiple data sets per profile?
So much helpful information! 5/5
This is my first pregnancy and it's so helpful to just go in this app and get so many questions answered. I love it!
Annoying since the update 2/5
I have been religiously updating my info to track my pregnancy daily. I love reading the articles and learning as much as I can.
Since the update, it has been, on a good day, a struggle to get the app to open and stay open. For the past two days I have not been able to enter data, or read, because it will not open. It's very frustrating. I spent an hour yesterday troubleshooting and repeatedly trying to open the app, and then probably the better part of an hour doing the same today. Still nothing.
I think another update is needed to address the bugginess. Otherwise, a good app.
Hate new update 2/5
Recent update has made it so my app will only open maybe 30% of the time which is frustrating because I loved using this app 😔 going on several days unable to get app to open
Better than any other pregnancy app 5/5
By Sad Demi
I love this app! One downside is a lot of crazy new moms who are worry warts and or seem really controlling on the question part of it! Other than them I love it
Many useful features 5/5
Lots of information and easy to navigate. Strikes a decent balance between cute and medically accurate.
Issues opening app 1/5
I absolutely loved this app in the beginning, but now it never wants to open or when it does its frozen and then shuts down.
Not sure what is causing this. Please fix!
Love it! 5/5
By Shortie13 (-:
A friend at work recommended the app to me and it's great! It shows me how big the baby is, it lets me track my health, and it shows me little tidbits about how the baby grows every week. This app is amazing!
Crashes too often/glitches 3/5
By not a happy overseer
I’m also having a problem with the initial loading of the app crashing the first time and then completely loading the second try. It also crashes in the middle of using the app as well. Goes to a black screen for 30 seconds or so before it closes out. As well as trying to scroll through the message boards it likes to jump from the top of a subject through the comments to bottom and back on it’s own making it very difficult to read anything. Would be a great app if the bugs were fixed.
Love it! 5/5
Love this app!!! It’s simply amazing and always right on point!
I love 5/5
I love the app
Awesome and informational. It’s nice to have something new to read everyday. It helps keep pregnancy fun!
Great but needs a change of a main feature 4/5
I really like this app but one this really has bothered me from the start. The references that are supposed to help you understand how big your baby is supposed to be are all strange. You can choose from weird and obscure vegetables that few people have heard of and give you no clue as to the size of your baby or you can choose from exotic/ rare animals that few people have heard of that also give you no clue about the size of your baby. The problem to me is am I receiving a lesson in obscure agriculture or zoology or am I trying to gain some concept as to the size of my human baby? This strange feature has made me want to open the app less and just upset me every time.
Like it a lot 5/5
I do enjoy this app a lot. There’s some things I wished it had, more so like the 3D images of the baby, but that’s about it. Everything else is great on it!
I hate that all these pregnancy apps require you to create an account. This also requires you to give your baby a nickname which is just maddening. It seemed like there was a good info, but I couldn't make sense of how it was organized. I don't have time to flip through everything in hopes of maybe finding what I'm looking for.
Wonderful App! 5/5
I love the weekly videos! Very informational and helpful! I love learning new things about my growing baby!
Stuck on Title Page 2/5
I love this app but the last few weeks I try logging on I get stuck at the title page when logging in. It's so frustrating and I get tempted to just look at my other apps. Being so close to the end of my pregnancy I like to referencing this app. I wish they would fix whatever this problem is and fix it soon.
Full of Info 4/5
Loved reading all the good info and fun facts each week!! Highly Recommend!!
Loved this app during pregnancy. It was so was easy to look up foods I could or couldn’t eat. I learnt a lot about my pregnancy symptoms and when something changed in my body I used the app to see if it was a coming pregnancy symptom. My mom had the app too and she loved keeping track of her grandsons development.
I absolutely love this app! I had downloaded several pregnancy apps, and this is the only one I use!
Love this app! 4/5
I enjoy using the app! It’s great to see what all is going on I do wish it would list more medicines that are and aren’t safe, and also I would like to see more on the home page of how my baby is doing. Overall it’s a great app and I love it. I check it aleast once a day! I never downloaded an app with my son but I did with this pregnancy because a friend recommended it! ❤️❤️
Love it ! 5/5
Would recommend to my friends
Medication Section 4/5
I love the app, however, it would be nice if I personally could favorite/save medications I’m personally taking so I wouldn't have to search them every time. The “most common” doesn’t even include a prenatal which I found odd.
Best pregnancy app 5/5
I have 4 pregnancy apps. All are good.. but Ovia is THE BEST!! Ovia has more info than the others, more up to date facts. I just love it! I look at Ovia a few times a day because it updates so much. The others just seem to update once a week and bore me.
Seems like the best pregnancy app out there 4/5
I like the weekly videos and the app is very user friendly.
The only thing I really dislike is the way the community feature is set up. I wish people could share and read more, like a message board.
Love this app I’ve learned soo much along my pregnancy I can’t stop using it
Best App 5/5
Very informational and on top of it all. Reminds me daily to take my vitamins as well as healthy eating styles. Love this app!
iLove this app , it really helps me out a lot when I’m experiencing new symptoms... everything that it tells you actually is true... it lets you know what will happen at EVERY DR. Visit !!!! & the size of the baby actually be true !!!! I get more & more excited I’ve been using it 7 months 🤗
Rude Moms 1/5
I actually like this app a lot more than 5 stars but I find myself not being able to use the community. So many rude moms on there and I can never find the love and support from some of the other moms that I expected. From now on I will use the app just to check on my baby’s development and to read the articles. Any questions I have I will ask my doctor or someone I know who has kids because the moms I see on that app are rude and don’t deserve kids. Just being honest.
I love this app🤰🏼 5/5
I love this app so much! This app has helped me weekly know exactly what’s going on during my pregnancy and the chat has helped me feel like I’m not alone. I do suggest to add a active chat for pregnant mommy’s you need quick answers from other moms.
Love this app! 5/5
This app is so nice for helping me feel normal as a pregnant woman. It is so nice to have a big support group behind you as you go through this huge amazing terrifying journey for the first time.
The amount of spam vs content is ridiculous 1/5
There are so many apps out there that don’t have 9 lines of spam for every line of useful stuff. I wouldn’t trust this app with anything, let alone my personal data.
Great app for pregnancy 4/5
This was one of the first apps I installed when I found out I was pregnant again. Loveee all the wonderful info as well as the information given specifically tailored to your needs. The photos and ultrasounds really helped me understand what is happening in my body. And I loveeeee the forum to post questions and no one knows who you really are. It’s a great way to ask all those embarrassing questions without being judged.
Downside: Having to pay for the app after 14 weeks but I guess everything can’t be free.
Smooth UI, too many ads 4/5
Overall I like this app and it’s fun to get cheerful notifications ‘hey gorgeous, how are you feeling today?’ But there are a lot of ads for pottery barn kids, updating your health insurance and employer info to unlock perks, etc. I don’t know, it’s one of the best pregnancy apps out there but it just seems underwhelming nonetheless.
Just disappointed 2/5
I've heard great things about this app but I've tried downloading it and it just keeps crashing on me 😢
best pregnancy app! 5/5
this app has everything you need for your pregnancy updates! wish I would have known about it earlier, I absolutely love it!!
We are using this for our first pregnancy and the daily updates are wonderful. You have a little bit of info about your baby every day and what a great and organized way to keep track of symptoms and appointments and anything you can think of really.
Best App 5/5
I have absolutely enjoyed this app, it’s been fun being able to watch my growing beans progress!
Too many insurance plugs 3/5
I used this app for my last pregnancy(3 years ago) and loved it, so I was quick to download it again when we found out we were pregnant a second time. However, this time there seems to be less information about the pregnancy and fetal development, but significantly more plugs for connecting the app through your employer for insurance information. I understand how that could be helpful to some but not to all of us (we have Tricare for the military insurance and it won’t even recognize it). It seems like every-other article on my feed is a promo for how Ovia and your insurance can work together to improve your app experience, which ironically is taking away from mine. Not sure I’ll be using this as my primary app for this pregnancy, unfortunately.
Ovia is by far the best app I’ve found for updates on my pregnancy! I also love the advice you can read and healthy recipes to try! It’s very informational. This app is great for first time moms. This is my second baby, but it answers lots of questions that first time mothers might have!
Great app! 5/5
Love this app it's been really useful and very informative each week, would prefer a little more info in between weeks but not sure there is much for them to add honestly! My only one issue with the app is that when going to the contraction timer it takes a while to load and I feel like I can never get an accurate timing, otherwise can't fault it
Baby fun facts and info.. 4/5
I’m now in my second trimester, I have enjoyed opening my app everyday to Check where my little kumquat is growing and developing. Not only learning about my growing baby but important information about me and the baby and what to expect to come in the months ahead. But I would like to see some exercise suggestions for those who
Doesn’t workout regularly and want to start while pregnant. Over all, it’s a great app and very helpful.
Im a 19 year old almost new father and honestly this app is like the parental advice i never had. Whenever im nervous about her or the baby pr have questions, this app is here for all 3 of us. Thank you for the tips and making sure that we keep healthy!
Watch out for erroneous advice 2/5
App is fun but full of ads and advice that espouses some beliefs that are fairly outdated (such as the idea that a 6 month old can be manipulative and doesn’t NEED to be held when they cry, among others).
